Brand

For going on two decades, LifeSpan has been trying to help people become healthier. They provide options that will increase your activity levels even while you work. Whether you are looking for solid options for your home gym, office, or other spaces in your life, they have great items for you. This includes treadmills, ellipticals, rowing machines, and more. There are options to make every point of your day a convenient time to work out. You will be able to take it easy and gain a few extra miles or work up a sweat to really push towards your overall health and wellness goals. Customers are really pleased with the wide variety of items that this brand has available for you. With the features, you want to see you will be able to easily work their products into your routine.

Basic Features

The basic features of this treadmill are a bit different than you would expect but that is because it’s not your average treadmill. The desk that comes with it is something we would consider a basic feature as this treadmill would not be useable with your standard desk. This one is adjustable up to fifty-two and a half inches. You will be able to easily place the cords through the leg of the desk so that they are hidden and organized. This is a feature consumer particularly enjoy about this item. There are wheels on the front of this treadmill so you can relocate it, however, consumers say it is a bit difficult as it is heavy and awkward. You may need two people to move it around. There is no cup holder on this option. You will want to be careful as you will likely have electronics sitting on top of this desk.

Advanced Features

We were pleasantly surprised to learn about what all this office treadmill option can do. There is an easy to use control panel that also houses the display. Here you will be able to control your speed and see a variety of different information. This includes aspects like how far you have walked, the number of steps you have taken, and how many calories you have burned. This product does have the ability to sync via Bluetooth with your Android or iPhone. Consumers are not exceptionally positive as this does seem to have some bugs. You will also have to use their Active Trac app which is not extremely well developed. It does appear as if this brand is continuing to work on it and with great customer service the experience is getting better and better. It has been noted on the brand’s website that they are currently working on getting you access to social media so that you can stay truly connected. This treadmill is also pretty smart and keeps your safety in mind. If you step off the side it will automatically pause.

Incline

It may be a bit of a disappointment for you to find out that this product does not provide you with any type of incline. This will reduce the level of challenge that it can offer you. It does improve the overall safety you have while using this. This is because you never know what type of shoes you might be wearing in the office and walking on a flat surface is obviously easier than walking up the hill. Overall, this product is not meant to be the most challenging product available. It is there to help improve activities levels and help you walk your way to better fitness. If you are looking for a higher level of challenge this is not going to be a great option for you. You may be better off to look for an under desk cycle as typically you can enhance the resistance which will allow for a better workout.

Comfort

This product has several features that will help improve your level of comfort while using it. The fact that you can easily adjust the height of the desk will make sure that you are in Prime position for typing. Not only that, along the sides of the control panel is a gel bar. It will help keep your wrists in the proper position for typing and this leads to better comfort after spending long hours on your computer. The treadmill itself is also built to improve your comfort. The belt is supported with springs to help reduce the impact that your muscles and joints feel even when you use it for long hours. It also helps to promote a comfortable working environment as it is exceptionally quiet. This will allow even those of you that have co-workers in your office to use this product without disrupting the work environment.

Speed

At its lowest speed, this treadmill runs at just under a half a mile an hour. You can increase the speed by a tenth of a mile per hour per button press. It is adjustable up to four miles per hour. Most consumers find that if you are typing and trying to pay close attention to your computer walking at about two miles an hour is the perfect speed. As you can see, this product does not move exceptionally fast which means you may not get a sweaty serious workout. Most people are using this product in their office so they're not looking to get an intense workout while using it. You'll be able to easily rack up the miles without worrying about it affecting your performance in your job. Even a slower rate of walking can help improve your stamina, weight loss, and other health-related goals.

Dimensions

Obviously, the dimensions of this product may make or break it for you depending on the space you have available. The treadmill portion of this product has a length of 68 and 1/2 inches. The width is 28 and 1/2 inches. You will want to be careful while measuring your space due to the fact that the desk portion is wider to ensure that the treadmill will fit underneath it. The desktop measures 38 inches in width and it is 29 inches deep so that you will be able to easily place a variety of computer components easily on top of it. This option also gives you plenty of walking surface. The belt is 20 inches wide by 50 inches long. It can accommodate up to 350 lb which makes it usable for the vast majority of people.

Assembly

Even if you are terrible at putting things together you should have no trouble with this product. As a matter of fact, every review agrees that putting this item together is as simple as can be. The treadmill portion of it does not require any assembly. You will simply need to feed the wires up through the leg of the desk portion of it. The desk does come in a few pieces but they are exceptionally easy to put together. You will get a very clear instructional guide that shows you how the five pieces fit together. It also includes the hardware and tools that you need to put it together quickly. Consumers are thrilled over the fact that they don't have to worry about paying extra money for expert assembly and that there is little to no struggle and putting this product together correctly.

Disadvantages

As with all products, there are few disadvantages that need to be discussed. Consumers have noted that this product is pretty heavy and cumbersome to move around.

You may want to have the user manual ready so you can move through the menus easily. One of the biggest points of contention when discussing this product is the limited variation of speeds. While most people aren't going to want to walk more than 4 miles an hour while they are working those of you that do will not be able to. One other major downfall of this product is that the app is not well received. This is an area that the brand continues to work on and we hope to see improvement over the course of time.
